Tortsen and Carrie had a great visit to Houston. (Matt was in North Carolina at the North American Symposium on Bat Research–an excellent conference, but Matt missed out seeing the family!) Torsten loved visiting with grandparents despite the vicious mosquitos. Catching up with former Juneau-ites Carrie, Adam, and Megan was a great part of the visit as well. Check out the whole slideshow.
We did manage to spend time in Juneau. It was a very rainy fall (we hit 60” of rain for the year by Oct 1). Lots of playing inside as well as keeping busy with work, teaching, tile painting, Torsten thoroughly enjoyed dancing to the accordion at a Sons of Norway gathering.
Torsten and Carrie went on down to Tracy Arm with Rob, Erica, Sammy, and Izzy. Whales are big, ice is cold, glaciers are cool (especially calving sea water glaciers). Matt was doing his civic duty (jury duty). Check out the photo highlights.
We had a great week on Prince of Wales Island–full of bats at night and exploring the Island (and entertaining Torsten) during the day. Check out the whole trip at http://talus-and-heavner.com/200607POW/
Dave, Abbey, Matt, Carrie, and Torsten all met up for the Juneau 4th Parade. After the great parade we went up and walked the dogs on Perseverance Trail. What great times!
